Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of dusty closet, cherries, pancake syrup.  Palate -- yum.  A lighter-style rye and quite sweet, with milk caramel and bubblegum hints.  Finish is long and continues the theme.  Some rougher spiritous edges keep this down a little, but it's a great, light rye without being too light. 

n: maple and cherry IHOP pancake syrup plus a bit of dry rye toast with margarine. Dill and mint further in.


t: sweet and buttery rye toast, on the lighter side with very mellow spice. The oak character appears in the middle with vanilla mint coffee creamer. Nice flavour and character with bread & butter pickle brine in the finish. [solid rye + value, B.]
